    Just says 1971 where i found it on tumblr unfortunately.

    I think they pull off the look ok really, would be an improvement if skinhead girls dressed like that now, still looks more feminine then some of the extreme haircuts they have now.

    Looks pretty non-cookie cutter skinhead to me, fella. Channeling some Miles Davis there. Better than tablecloth shirt fabric!

    Looks very much like a short-sleeved version of a shirt I had in 1969. What's the label on the inside say?

    The shirt is probably only a few seasons old. The make is Stafford which is the house brand for JC Penny's. They're the sort of item that is constantly on sale and can usually be had for <20 bucks. I grabbed a pink long sleeve in the same make/size as well (probably donated in the same lot) but it has a sketchy looking rust stain on the collar I don't know if i'll be able to get out.

    Nice find. Looks perfectly acceptable as a skinhead piece to me, nice collar roll too.

    True, there is still some very feminine looking older ladies tho. You can still look nice at that age if you dress nice, i think older women actually look better then younger women when they dress well.

    I also had a mint coloured shirt in 1969. It was a Ben Sherman and came in a box, as many shirts did back then.I still have the box and it is now full of football programmes.

    Agreed and you wont feel like a peado while admiring 14 year olds in fringe n buckle loafers but not with those modern 80s style skinhead haircuts though .

    Think there is a difference between thinking someone dresses smart from that dodgy shit, so that never crossed my mind.

    I have seen too many older women ruined by 80's style skinhead cuts, it makes them look a bit like butch lesbians sometimes, would of talked to them otherwise.
